Indian cricketer, Rohit Sharma and his wife, Ritika Sajdeh’s love story is nothing less than a fairytale. Ritika and Rohit’s romance had started when she used to work as a sports event manager for Rohit. They used to meet for their work and soon their work meetings had turned into date nights. Rohit had proposed Ritika in a romantic way and it included everything that a girl can ever wish for, a solitaire ring also. Rohit had taken Ritika to Borivali sports club ground in Mumbai, where he had first started playing when he was 11. He had proposed her with a big ring and had asked her to marry him! Later, the two had gotten married in a grand ceremony on December 13, 2015.
The madly-in-love couple, Rohit and Ritika had welcomed their little angel, Samaira in their lives on December 30, 2018.

Sharing pictures from the birthday celebration and throwback pictures, Rohit wrote, “Happy happy birthday to my little Cookie Monster. Your arrival has brought nothing but excitement, laughter and bliss to our lives. Here’s to more midnight dancing, rapping and showing you the world.”
Ritika Sajdeh also took to her Instagram handle and shared some throwback pictures with her daughter, Samaira and wished her with a heartfelt note. Her note could be read as “Our baby is ONE!! Happiest birthday Sammy-boo. This has been the best, most challenging, most fun year of our lives and it’s all thanks to you baby girl. From dancing to Santa Shark and Jubel, to splashing around in whatever water body we find, to saying hi to every bird, dog, tree and lamppost we see. May this year be filled with lots of love, luck and bubbles.” (Suggested Read: Anushka Sharma And Hubby, Virat Kohli Pose With Varun Dhawan And GF, Natasha Dalal In Switzerland)

In an interview with Australian cricketer, Michael Clarke, Rohit Sharma had talked about the life-changing moment and had said, “I cannot wait to be a father; it is going to be a game-changing moment in our lives. I am eagerly awaiting the moment of becoming a father. It will be a moment to change our lives.” He had further shared the reaction of his teammates and had said, “When my teammates got to know that I am going to become a father, they were laughing at me. They were like you are going to be a father. The reaction came in because of the mannerism and the things I have done in my previous years. They think I am irresponsible, obviously in a funny way. But I am gonna make sure that everything changes.” (Must Read: Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt's Wedding Preparation Begins, Neetu-Rishi Speed Up The Work At KrishnaRaj)
